Description

This guide describes seven major treks, plus a brief introduction. The seven treks are really a combination of numerous routes that trekkers can choose according to the time they have available and the level of their experience and skill. The author has taken great care to describe itineraries that avoid covering ground that has already been passed over.

Each trek is described in the following detail: routes to follow, sights, accommodation, inhabitants one will encounter, etc. Instead of the usual maps and sketches, special diagrams have been created to show the various elevations at various selected stages on the trek and at each suggested stopping place.

This guide also answers essential questions such as: Where, when and how to trek? What procedures must be followed? What equipment should be taken? What health precautions should one take?

Detail trekking routes
Expert practical information which includes advice upon health, climate and clothing.
Easy-to-use maps and elevation plans.
Superb colour photography.
